During the WWE Clash of Champions Kickoff show, it was announced that three wrestlers were not cleared to appear on tonight’s show.
Shayna Baszler, Nikki Cross, and Nia Jax have not been medically cleared to compete. It was also announced that the status of the Raw Women’s Tag Team Title match will be addressed tomorrow night on Monday Night Raw. Bayley, who was scheduled to defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship tonight against Cross, will appear tonight on Clash of Champions. The word going around backstage is that there would be a replacement opponent for Bayley.
The Raw Women’s Championship match between champion Asuka and Zelina Vega was scheduled for the Kickoff show but that match has been moved to the main card.
It was not said why the three wrestlers were not cleared. There was an outbreak among NXT and Performance Center wrestlers this week and there was concern about COVID-19 spread among some of the main roster stars because there were several Performance Center wrestlers at Raw around the ring during the Lucha Underground segments and they played the role of the unnamed Retribution members.
